Mother Nature turns out the lights
Many Bureau County residents were left still shivering in the cold following the winter storm that pushed through the area Thursday afternoon and into Friday morning.
Thursday's storm may have brought only 2 to 4 inches of snow around the county, but it was the strong winds that left their impact with widespread power outages.
On Friday, Ameren Illinois spokesperson Leigh Morris said nearly 2,400 customers in Bureau County still remained without electricity on Friday morning, but hopefully all the power would be restored to customers by Friday evening. The winds caused a lot of broken poles and downed lines throughout the state, Morris said.
